Hi. You have developed tear in long head of biceps also called as slap tear. You need to consult shoulder specialist orthopedic surgeon. Take rest for few days. Apply ice pack 5 times daily for 10 minutes every time. If pain doesn't settle in a week, consult again. Don't take any medicines till then.
